Designed with Ionic+™ antimicrobial technology
Infused with the Ionic+™ technology, our products have built-in anti-microbial properties that last the lifetime of the products.
The primary principle behind Ionic+™ Technology is the release of silver ions (Ag+) from the Ionic+™ fibers. The positively charged silver ions will be released in the presence of respiratory moisture and will act in several ways to inhibit and eliminate bacteria on the surface of the mask, protecting the masks from microbial impact.
Metalized filament with high purity silver permanently bonded to the surface of nylon fiber
Silver ions are embedded into the fiber through extrusion
Like antibiotics, silver ions inhibit pathogen growth and reproduction. In the petri dish, you can see how microbes refuse to grow near silver ions. By dosing the fabric correctly (7-10%), we create this zone of inhibition all over the garment.
Although various metals can be used, Ionic+ is by far the most efficient way to achieve antimicrobial efficacy.
